ESCWA presented an overview of the Lebanese labour market in the wake of COVID-19 and the economic and financial crises. It highlighted the importance of creating fiscal space to support employment in the country.

ESCWA also stressed the need for Lebanon to adopt short-term fiscal measures that boost demand in the economy, and medium- and long-term measures that would steer the economy towards diversification and more productive employment generation.
